This has definitley been the most commonly asked question this spring. With the cooler than normal temperatures that we have experienced so far this year, do not assume that your grasses are dead. Cool-season grasses should have already emerged by now, but at the farm, we are also waiting for most of the warm-season grasses to begin growing (even though it is late May!). We are still waiting for Dallas Blues, Northwind, Zebra grass, etc. to show some signs of growth. Hopefully it will be any day now.
The moral of the story is.... give your grasses some additional time this spring and try not to get discouraged. If you would like more information on cool-season vs. warm season grasses, click here.
